SL-ing IONITX

Like my previous posting, I have trouble installing  Snow Leopard in Zotac IONITX board. The specification of my board could be found here. Following items are my additional hardware configuration:

  • Motherboard: Zotac IONITX D-E
  • Memory: 2x2GB Corsair XMS 800MHz
  • Hardrive WDC 500GB Green
  • Samsung P2370 HD LCD Monitor
  • Samsung DVD RW

I did follow this tutorial, especially this section and it’s working awesome.

Here are temporary summary of the results:

  • VGA is working great with BIOS setting using VRAM 512MB
  • Line out Audio is working
  • Shutdown is working with BIOS setting ACPI 2.0 (I did try using ACPI 3.0, but it failed to shutdown)
  • Restart and Sleep are not working (after replace boot file using EFI PCI v 5.1)

SL-ing Asus P6T Deluxe

After couple of months trying to install Snow Leopard on my Asus P6T Deluxe PC Desktop , today I have it done pretty well..

Here are my Desktop Configuration:

Mobo: Asus P6T Deluxe (BIOS Version 1102)

CPU: Intel Core i7 920

Memory: Corsair XMS 3x2G (6GB) DDR3 1096MHz

VGA: Asus 9400GT 512MB Silent

Disk: 750GB WD SATA Green

DVD: Sony DVD RW

Screen: Apple Cinema Display HD 23″ and Samsung P2370

I just follow step-by-step on this insanelymac, but if you want the easier way there are other posting from other guy which provide installer to do the steps automatically, you can find here.

Here are the evaluation results so far:

  • VGA Card is detected properly
  • Shutdown/Restart is working
  • Sound card output is working
  • Sleep is working, but the wake-up is still problem, turn into blank screen after upgrade fakesmc to v2.5
  • Need OSX86Tools to make Core i7 detected properly

    After installation, I am able to update to 10.6.2 with combo update without any problems.

    If you have problem with Shutdown and Restart with some configuration in BIOS, so you might need to:

    • Enabling ACPI 2.0
    • Apply OpenHaltRestart.kext that can be found in my other post.

    Best Quotes from Jack (1996) Movie

    …we find ourselves remembering the good times, and trying to forget the bad times. And as we start to look ahead, we start to worry. We think “What am I going to do? Where am I going to be in ten years?” But I say to you, “Hey, look at me!” Please, don’t worry so much. Because when you get right down to it, none of us have very long on this earth. Life is fleeting, like a shooting star in the sky. Whenever you see a shooting star light up the sky with its brilliance, think of me, and try to make each and every moment of our lives as spectacular as possible. I know I did. I made it, …

    Best Quote from Anton Ego, Ratatouille (2007)

    In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little, yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. But there are times when a critic truly risks something, and that is in the discovery and defense of the new. The world is often unkind to new talents, new creations. The new needs friends. (Anton Ego, Ratatouille, Pixar)

    Sampan Sederhana Bernyalakan Lentera

    Mari merapat kesini, ke dermaga ilahi
    Kita kayuh sampan sederhana bernyalakan lentera
    Redup redam ditelan malam
    Arungi laut kehidupan atasi gelombang, halau karang dan hadapi badai serta hujan
    Disini bersama sampan sederhana bernyalakan lentera

    Perahu besar, kapal pesiar bukan kita punya
    Itu milik para tetua kita hasil keringatnya
    Mari kita bangun bersama diatas kaki terbelah
    Kelak jika memang rezekinya kita juga akan punya
    Tapi biarlah, sementara kita mengarungi kehidupan dengan sampan sederhana bernyalakan lentera
    Itu lebih terasa dan bermakna
    Sautan camar dan desiran gelombang menjadi teman dan saksinya

    Mari, kesini bersamaku temani hidupku mengelola gelombang , halau karang , hadapi badai dan hujan
    Menuju pulau impian, dari dermaga ilahi
    Didermaga ini , bersama kita mereguk bekal yang hakiki
    Ikhlas menjadi niatan, Ihsan menjadi amalan
    Da’wah dan jihad menjadi penopang
    Akhlak, tarbiyah menjadi bangunan
    Mengayuh dayung, menuju pulau impian
    Yang tiada dusta dan sia-sia, ketika setiap jiwa bertanggung jawab atas apa yang dilakukannya
    Ya …pulau itu , negeri akhirat tempat kita kembali

    Mari bersama !
    Mendayuh sampan sederhana bernyalakan lentera
    Membangun kehidupan diatasnya
    Hidup bersama tak lagi terbelah

    Jika layar sampan terkoyak, jahitlah ia agar tetap indah dan berguna
    Kalau kayuh ini salah melangkah tegurlah dengan ramah dan mesra
    Kita kail setiap ikan yang ada, bahkan kalau bisa dengan jala
    Agar bekal menuju pulau impian tetap tersedia

    Besarkan anak kita diatas laut kehidupan dengan gelombang , karang , badai dan hujan
    Ajari mereka berenang agar kelak tak mabuk lautan dan tegar menghadapi terpaan ganasnya alam
    Kalau gelombang datang, peluk erat jemari, kita imbangi dengan tawakal dan ikhtiar
    Jika karang dihadapan , kayuh dayung ini bersama, agar tak karam dihantamnya
    Jika hujan datang, kita berteduh diatap-atap kepasrahan dan kesabaran

    Mari berlayar dilaut kehidupan, dari dermaga ilahi, menuju pulau impian dengan
    sampan sederhana bernyalakan lentera, agar jiwa tidak terbelah, bersama…..

    Solaris 10 10/08 (U6) ZFS Root Installation Tip

    If you wish to install the new Solaris 10 10/08 using ZFS for its root file system, you might not see it in GUI installation mode.

    That’s why you need to install it using Text/Console mode. Just choose number 4 in the first prompt of the installation process.

    In one of wizard step, you are prompted either using ZFS or UFS, just choose ZFS instead. Then, fill the pool name, choose the size of root pool swap and dump area, and how you want to store /var.

    xVM with Marvell Yukon Ethernet Driver

    I have days problem with enabling my Marvell Yukon Ethernet Driver (in may case, I’m using 88E8056) working with Sun xVM VirtualBox and xVM in either Solaris 10 or Nevada B80/B93. I used driver comes from Marvell, I have test 2 versions of drivers, but no luck. All version, when I issued dladm show-dev command. it always indicate that the status is UNKNOWN.

    After searching around just realize that xVM needs GLD v3 network drivers that is not provided by Marvell, this link is very useful for me, so I replicated from that site become newer version:

    • Obtain ON source here and extract it
    • Obtain driver source here (in this case I’m using version 2.6.1, or you can get newer version) and extract it
    • Make sure that skge (from Solaris/OpenSolaris Installer) or yukonx (from Marvell) were removed
    • Do this thing:

    $ gzcat myk-2.6.1.tar.gz | tar xf -
    $ cd myk-2.6.1
    $ rm Makefile.config
    $ ln -s Makefile.config_gld3 Makefile.config
    $ vi Makefile.config

    Edit the line like this (appropriate with your ON source extracted location):
    ONUTSDIR = /root/Download/opensolaris/usr/src/uts

    • Build and install the driver (in this case I’m using GCC)

    $ export PATH=$PATH:/usr/sfw/bin
    $ gmake
    $ su
    # gmake install
    # ./adddrv.sh
    # dladm show-link
    LINK CLASS MTU STATE OVER
    myk0 phys 1500 up --

    Now you can start your Sun xVM VirtualBox and xVM network bridge is working fine…
